Bowlan will serve as the Royals' opening pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Tigers, Anne Rogers of reports.

Bowlan's start Wednesday will mark the first appearance of his major-league career. The 26-year-old righty was rather unspectacular in the minors this season, recording a 5.91 ERA and 1.58 WHIP through 102 innings between Double-A Northwest Arkansas and Triple-A Omaha. Though Rogers' report labels Bowlan as an opener, he should be able to offer more length than what's typically associated with that role, given that his most recent appearance was a six-inning start for Omaha on Sept. 16. He'll have the benefit of facing a Tigers offense that owns MLB's second-lowest team OPS (.679).
